Chef Sebastien Archambault introduced new versions of his seasonal menu last weekend to RH at Andaz West Hollywood. This newest incarnation is dedicated to the flavors of southwestern France, specifically Perigord where the chef grew up in his family's restaurant. Learning technique under Ducasse and Savoy, years cooking in Corsica, and his Gallic upbringing have imbued the chef with a love for the southwest region's edible bounty and simple culinary style. Local farmer's market fare rules the new menus as expected; working our peas and button mushrooms into entrees like slow braised beef cheek or seared wild salmon with sorrel and a Sauv Blanc cream. Pork from Sonoma and Petaluma duck make the cut on a charcuterie plate and salads utilize farms in Oxnard and Lompoc. The chef says he gets frequent nods for his Angus burger with frites cooked in duck confit and fried in duck and vegetable oil. Take a look at Chef Archambault's newly inspired dinner menu:
